Dr. Shannon DiCarlo RN LAc DAOM began her career as a trauma nurse at The Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, MD. From there, she continued her career at Georgetown University Hospital, Mount Sinai Hospital, and NYU Medical Center. Her passion was always holistic medicine, and through her own independent studies, it became apparent that optimal wellness is achieved through a combination of both Western and Eastern methods.
Dr. DiCarlo returned to graduate school at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine, first earning a double masters degree in Acupuncture and Chinese Herbology and later a Doctorate in Acupuncture and Traditional Oriental Medicine.
After coordinating the Integrative Oncology Acupuncture department at Mount Sinai Beth Israel's prestigious Comprehensive Cancer Center in New York City, Dr. DiCarlo returned to her home state of New Jersey to treat patients in a private practice setting.
Through combining her knowledge of Western Medicine as a registered nurse, and her extensive training in Eastern Medicine and natural and holistic therapies, Dr. DiCarlo is able to offer her patients a truly integrative approach to health and wellness.
